General info

In February of 1944, Clyde Banbury and Clyde Cornell started the first Raccoon Dinner. It was held in Clyde Banbury's basement with 30 in attendance. As the event evolved, speakers were included as part of the program. Most notable and outstanding include former Governor of Ohio Jim Rhodes and OSU Coach Woody Hayes.

Raccoon is served as the entree coupled with a full course setting of mashed potatoes, mixed vegetables, raccoon gravy, cake, and a generous serving of fresh homemade cornbread. The participants come from all over the United States and Canada to attend this famous event.
